Lil Wayne’s Death Reports History
Not all of Lil Wayne’s fans were tricked by the latest death scam about the rapper. After all, his passing has been falsely reported multiple times over the last few years, and his history of epileptic seizures is to blame.
“The bad news is I’m an epileptic, I’m prone to seizures,” Lil Wayne revealed to Los Angeles hip-hop radio station Power 106 on March 28, 2013, after scaring fans with a hospital stint. “Like, this isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them. … Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious. But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself.”
We’re so glad Lil Wayne is doing well!
